How to Find Articles

Below are links to some of the library's databases where you can find journal, newspaper, and magazine articles.  All of the databases are accessible from the library's website.  Click on eResources from the library's homepage.  Then select All eResources to view a complete list of databases.

The Legal Information Reference Center is a database where you can find legal forms and information on different legal topics.

Newspaper articles are also good sources for finding information on current or popular legal topics.  National Newspapers is a searchable database of newspaper articles from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The LA Times, The Christian Science Monitor, and The Washington Post.  

CQ Researcher is another database where you can find articles and reports on popular and controversial legal topics.  From the main page, click on Browse By Topic located on the left side of the page.  Then click on Constitutional Law and Justice.  Here you can choose from a list of legal topics.  

Remember! Newspaper and journal articles are secondary sources.  They are great resources for learning about and collecting background information on different legal topics.
